Tentacles

Posted by Shayla Simmons — 15 Nov 2012

The squid and the octopus, in ancient times, were referred as the monstrous creatures of the deep abyss.  So big in size, these monsters could capsize traveling ships, killing or leaving sailors clinging to the floating boards left over from their sunken vessels.  We've wandered the vast sea of JPG photo submissions and found great images of tentacles that our users submitted telling the tales of these fascinating creatures.

These tentacled 'beasts' may not be as enigmatic as they once were, but they possess a certain quality that fascinates beyond Japanese folk-lore or Steampunk fashions.  Please share with us your favorite images of the squid or octopus by uploading them to the site and dropping the links in the comments below.  Or, if you stumble upon a few browsing the millions of fine JPG member photographs, create a collection and post the link below in the comment area.
